I am reviewing the ninth edition of Familiar Quotations printed in 1938. This book is still relevant today. The quotations by the different authors are right on the mark for what is going on in society today. It is refreshing to is a book age like a fine wine - to get better with age. As with any piece of literature that may be one or two that do not fit the bigger picture but my overall assessment is that this book is right on target for todays readers especially those that need a quote to spice things up. It is even good for preachers to refer to for a sermon. I will find uses for this book as it has such potential in so many fields.
